‘Lock Down’ Short Film Shot Inside Jail Draws Attention

Kannur: With a message to stay united to overcome the crisis, a short film made by Kannur Sub-jail has gained attention. Actor Mohanlal and Jayaram officially released  ‘Lock Down’, a film directed by Gautham Pradeep, through his Facebook page.

Director Gautham Pradeep, who wrote the script and acted in the short film said the aim was to focus on the loneliness of the prisoners and hence he developed the lead character as the one who landed in prison for trying to save his daughter. “My idea was to establish the concept of lockdown from life behind the bars while conveying the idea that the men in khaki and government are there to help you in such a situation,” he said.

“Within hours of the release on social media, it got immense response and was appreciated by many, including CM Pinarayi Vijayan, health minister KK Shailaja and DGP (prisons) Rishi Raj Singh,” he said, adding that Singh had thought about sensitizing people about Covid-19 and necessary precautions.
